Vision Statement & Values

Vision Statement

Pursuing racial reconciliation through honest education, intentional conversation, and meaningful action.

Vision

Broad Goals

  • Reshaping American church missions from a charity, assimilation and parental model to one of humble learners in need of partnership from a rich and culturally-diverse body.
  • Giving space for Native Americans to speak and participate in American politics and policy issues such as immigration reform and national elections.
  • Equipping and empowering Native American Christians to participate in missions from the context of indigenous cultures and world views
  • Encouraging Native Americans to embrace their God-given cultural characteristics that result in authentic worship of the Creator and his son Jesus.
  • Empowering Native Americans to embrace their collective role as the host peoples of this land, and offering this “nation of immigrants” wisdom, leadership and adoption.

Core Values

  • Racial reconciliation
  • Operating out authority rather than from a position of power
  • Embracing the discomfort than comes from diversity
  • Ministry that is both contextual to the poor and prophetic to the rich
